Sunshine Enterprises buys Turner’s OCTO system scaffolding production and sales arm

SUNSHINE Enterprises has bought the production and sales arm of OCTO system scaffolding from Turner Access and is now trading OCTO in the UK via StepUp Scaffolding UK (Ltd).

StepUp Scaffolding UK will continue to serve its UK and European customer base via a newly formed brand, Sunshine Enterprises Group Europe – now with the addition of the OCTO system scaffolding range.

Turner Access, meanwhile, is now focused on its contract scaffolding activities from its recently expanded main operational hub and head office in Glasgow.

Knud Højland Pedersen, the new Sunshine Enterprises Group Europe MD, said, “This deal is fantastic news for the UK scaffolding sector – allowing existing StepUp Scaffolding UK (Ltd) and new British and European customers to slickly and efficiently benefit from the safety and productivity boosting gains of the fantastic OCTO system scaffolding, at a time where safety and speed in scaffolding has never been more critical. Having the scale, speed and quality of a brand like Sunshine Enterprises behind the StepUp UK business is going to put OCTO System Scaffolding on the map here in the UK and beyond.”

New Turner Access MD, Simon Russell, added, “This is great news for Turner Access as a brand and our Scottish and UK-wide construction customer base. The shift of emphasis here from production of scaffolding to contract activity and the huge investment and growth this deal will help to support will help us in our vision to be the leading scaffold contractor in Scotland, offering clients a first class scaffolding service in accordance with our #WorkSafeHomeSafe culture– ideally suited to the current situation.”
